Zac Efron in High School Musical and 'Let It Go' from Frozen Match Up Oddly Well (VIDEO)

In the most world-shaking development since someone first discovered the uncanny synchronicity between The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, some genius has found that Zac Efron's "Bet on It," from High School Musical, sort of matches up with the apparently inescapable "Let It Go" from Frozen.

Karina Smirnoff's DWTS Blog: Last Week's Big Lift Was a 'Little Shaky'

Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The longtime competitor will blog for PEOPLE about competing with former High School Musical star Corbin Bleu in season 17.

I feel great right now. I think we're in a great place. I thought our contemporary routine was pretty cool and I thought we nailed what Corbin [Bleu] and I wanted to do. It showed potential and it showed that there's room to grow. We wanted to take some risks with lifts and I think overall, it paid off. We were in the second position with Val [Chmerkovskiy] and Elizabeth [Berkley]. I think that's a great place to start.

I think, though, if we were able to do this dance later on in the season, we would have been able to a better job with it, because we would have been more used to each other and each other's timing and body weight. It's hard to gauge scoring. I wonder if they're judging us against other couples or against contemporary dances done in previous seasons? You can't control what the judges do, but you can control what you put out there.

VIDEO: Check Out What Happens When Glee Meets Twilight

Originally posted 06/15/2010 10:30AM



We may never see the day Edward Cullen breaks into song, but, no doubt, it's every Gleek and Twi-Hard's fantasy. Bringing you the best of both worlds, I Kissed a Vampire might just fill the void.

The rock musical, which premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival this past weekend, follows three teens navigating the fang-tastic world of the undead. Dylan (Lucas Grabeel of High School Musical fame) is going through some major life changes – he's transforming into a vampire. His efforts to protect his girlfriend Sara (Adrian Slade) from a similar fate and the deliciously deviant vampire Trey Sylvania (Drew Seeley) prove fruitless. His beauty gets bitten, and pretty soon everyone wants to "go for the throat."

Will they ever be human again? With songs like "Just a Little Peck" and "Love's in Vein," we'll sing along, either way.
